The day we went, we took the 9am train to Hangzhou and the 4pm train back. This gave us plenty of time to explore the tea village and its surroundings. We had time to hike into the hills covered in tea bushes, have a lecture on how tea is cultivated, eat a grand lunch, do a tea tasting and see how tea is roasted, do a bit of tea shopping and enjoy a nice long walk through the forest back to our van (that took us back to the train station).
